You see, this happens when those damn car ads do not stop tearing down your music: The Guardian reports that Jón þór Birgisson, Georg Hólm, Kjartan Sveinsson and Orri Páll Dýrason – aka These adorable guys from Reykjavik, Sigur Rós, have been charged with tax evasion by the government of their island home. All four members – who froze their sizeable assets – claim that the unpaid taxes were the fault of a former accountant who filed his tax returns from 2011 to 2014 at a price of 151 Icelandic kroner, the American value of which we will to the reader as an exercise to determine. (Okay, pencil down: It's about $ 1.2 million – not Wesley Snipe's money, but still enough to put all four in significant trouble.)
The Icelandic tax rates are, of course, high, with the most successful grief The country's Soundscape makers pay 46 percent of their wealth as income tax. The money is then paid for public health services and other services, such as the preservation of the fjords, and the creation of even more atmospheric, beautiful soundscapes. The members of Sigur Rós have vowed to erase their names – which is also the subject of our exciting screenplay The Fúgítívés while their lawyer claims: "The members of Sigur Rós are musicians and not experts in accounting and accounting international finance "- again a show that we would probably see.
